Growing Up White: A Veteran Teacher Reflects on Racism

"I applaud Julie Landsman for her courage and candor in vividly illustrating how she and countless others have benefited from white privilege. The reflective exercises and practical strategies that she recommends can enable educators to deal with their own racial baggage, and increase their efficacy with students of color. Because this rich narrative can empower both educators and students, Landsman has made another excellent contribution to the growing body of literature on white privilege, diversity, and “must have conversations."
Gail L. Thompson, Ph.D. Author: Up Where We Belong: Helping African American and Latino Students Rise in School and in Life
